Post LIA Upload error
We just switched from lisa/m to Lia, we did everything just as lisa/m (grounded ADC2)
but we can't seem to upload.
the upload message was

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/lab071/paparazzi/sw/airborne'
cd sw/airborne; make PAPARAZZI_SRC=/home/lab071/paparazzi PAPARAZZI_HOME=/home/lab071/paparazzi TARGET=ap upload

thank you for your help :)

we have done what you say,but it is still error.

we have use Lisa/M, and we connect ADC2 and GND before uploading with luftboot,it worked well.
but when we change to Lia board,we use the same method to upload,we got some error like before.

we just want to know what should we notice.
and what is the different between Lisa/M and Lia board for upload step.

thank you very much~~~

There should be no difference in firmware upload on Lia vs. Lisa/M.

When you short the ADC2 pad to GND during powerup you should get the same LED blink pattern as on Lisa/M this means the bootloader is active.

Then the device should be detected by your computer. On linux the command:

> lsusb -v

Should contain something similar to:

iManufacturer 1 Transition Robotics Inc.
iProduct 2 Lisa/M (Upgrade) V1.0

On Mac OS you should be able to find a Lisa/M device in About This Mac -> More Info... -> System Report ... -> Hardware -> USB that looks similar to this:

Lisa/M (Upgrade) V1.0:

  Product ID:   0x600f
  Vendor ID:   0x1d50
  Version:    1.00
  Serial Number:   LI1-003 31FFD9053346303339550143?
  Speed:   Up to 12 Mb/sec
  Manufacturer:   Transition Robotics Inc.
  Location ID:   0xfa130000 / 6
  Current Available (mA):   500
  Current Required (mA):   100

I hope this helps. Of course on Lia you need to short the pads where a connector would go as the board does not have the Molex Picoblade connectors mounted.

Cheers Piotr
